Default List of small caliber take-down/folding rifles?



Advertise Here

I'm hoping to come up with a list of rifles that can be taken-down and stored in a reasonably sized pack (for me, that would be a medium ALICE). I did not see a similar thread. I know of a few but there are probably more out there. Can be any action. Needs to be a rifle or carbine. Guns like the T/C Encore with interchangeable barrels count since it is relatively easy to break them down.

I'm considering keeping a take-down rifle in my BOB. I already own a T/C Encore that only comes out for deer season. I would just need a custom barrel. The T/C barrels can be pricey, so I'm weighing what it would cost to go this route versus a totally different firearm.

Some options off the top of my head are:

- Henry AR-7 (.22LR, $300)
- Springfield M6 Scout (.22LR/.410, rare)
- M4 Survival Rifle (.22Hornet, rare)
- Ruger 10/22 take-down (.22LR, $330)
- AGP Arms take-down 10/22 (.22LR, $450)
- Volquartsen Fusion take-down (.22LR, $1600)
- Thompson/Center Encore w/ custom barrel (various, $300-400/barrel)
- Rossi W w/ additional barrel (various, $???)
- Rossi 62SA Pump

Others?

Thanks!

Norinco ATD 22

Thoughts on this rifle? They look to be about $200 new and have little collectible value, so I wouldn't feel bad cutting the barrel and modifying the stock.

The Kel-Tec Sub2000 is not only a compact, small pistol calibre carbine, but can be more quickly assembled (essentially just unfolded) than most takedown models. The 9mm chambering is small enough to harvest small game, but big enough in a repeating rifle to better protect against larger animals like bears.

I'm hoping to make it one of my main backpacking rifles this summer.

Ar15 pistol with 7.5" barrel. Detach upper from lower. Quicker to put together than a 10/22 takedown. More firepower. Lose stock capability though. More pricey, better choice in my opinion.

I was looking for a Sub2000 in 9mm but they were hard to find. Then the CT shootings happened and their prices shot up to $800+ when you did see one. They seem to be coming down a little but not the $350-450 they should be. LGS won't accept any more orders until they are caught up.

I see very mixed reviews on these. They are now called the FeatherUSA RAV22. Some love them, others hate them. I don't think I'll be able to buy one where I currently live anyway (MA). Semi-auto, pistol grip, detachable mag and collapsing stock make it an "assault weapon".

I love my Sub2000. Weighs next to nothing and folded it fits into even a small backpack.
I already had a dozen Glock 17 mags so that was no extra expense.
It's what I take with me when I go camping or travel more than 100 miles from my house.

Any AR, and AR pistol with a folding butt stock can get pretty small.
